Two journalists, who perhaps seems a bit old-fashioned but nevertheless are true professionals, present a few sketches about the latest news and other reports of the day in two old radios which double as televisions. Various “simple” topics are told with a cast of different marionettes and objects, for example: more work for… (yeah, what for actually?), fashion, sex tourism, killers, foreigners, endless stories about this and that. And almost like in a film or a fairy tale, these headline scoops end surprisingly with a big, beautiful love story. A happy end after all of these crazy reports of the day.
The short stories are performed without the slightest trace of text, rather with music, background noises, and other borborygmi (stomach rumbles) – you’ll often ponder whether you should belly laugh or crack a strained smile!
